Orthopedic Patients Regain Function with Astym® Therapy
Our physical therapists received training and certification by Astym’s
creator, Performance Dynamics, Inc., so they could begin guiding our patients
through this noninvasive regenerative soft tissue therapy.
Each patient is given a customized program of Astym stretching and exercises
based on need. Astym has been shown effective in consistently resolving
chronic pain and decreased functional mobility due to overuse injuries,
degenerative tendinopathies, post-op/post-injury scarring, and recurring
sprains and strains.
Astym therapy stimulates the tissues involved so they may regenerate and
heal properly. It can eliminate or reduce scar tissue after joint replacement
and other surgical procedures, or after wearing a cast or splint for an
Astym treatment also relieves common chronic conditions, such as golfer’s
or tennis elbow, hamstring strains, runner’s knee, carpal tunnel
syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and low back pain.
Patients typically experience less pain and greater range of motion after
eight to 10 visits. During Astym therapy, patients may continue all of
their daily activities, which become easier and less painful as physical
issues resolve. Improved quality of life is a welcome bonus, and our physical
therapists are pleased to make it possible.
